Sorry, that part of the design doc is waaaaay old. We use apache to
do authentication, but *authorization* is a different story.

For now, you need to use apache's <Location> directives (in
httpd.conf) to restrict what certain users can and cannot do in the
repository. You can also use pre-commit hook scripts to do the same,
with much finer granularity. But this all has to be done in a
home-made way.

Someday after 1.0, we're thinking about putting real ACLs into the
repository filesystem, provided our heads don't explode while thinking
about it.
